So, it’s that time of year again — NaNoWriMo started this week. (If you’re unfamiliar with NaNoWriMo, it stands for National Novel Writing Month, and is a challenge to write a 50,000 word novel in the month of November.) I salute everyone taking part, because I think it’s an amazing and very challenging goal. My friend Cas is participating (go, Cas!) but I am not. I keep saying I’m going to do it at some point, but I have a lot on my plate right now, so this year is definitely not the time to try. Maybe next year will be better. Until then, I’ll just be cheering on other writers from the sidelines.
